Toddler Years

Toddlers are children between the ages of one and under three years old. For many, the toddler years challenge parents as they watch their young child learn new things and develop more complex thinking. The toddler years can also leave parents feeling concerned over their child's weight and health.

Growth Charts

According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "growth charts consist of a series of percentile curves that illustrate the distribution of selected body measurements in U.S. children. Paediatric growth charts have been used by paediatricians, nurses, and parents to track the growth of infants, children, and adolescents in the United States since 1977."

Average Weight

According the CDC growth chart, the average 14-month-old boy weighs 10.9 Kilogram and the average 14-month-old girl weighs 9.98 Kilogram. This means that approximately 50 per cent of boys weigh more than 10.9 Kilogram and 50 per cent weigh less.
